What has happened down here is the wind have changed
Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

The river rose all day
The river rose all night

Some people got lost in the flood
Some people got away alright
The river have busted through cleared down to Plaque mines
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

They're tyrin' to wash us away
They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away
They're tryin' to wash us away

With a little fat man with a notepad in his hand
The President say, Little fat man isn't it a shame

To this poor crackers land
